Alison Fraser’s Tennessee Williams CD


There’s something about my dear friend Alison Fraser. Something about her abilities to light up any room she walks into, to keep her glowing charisma onstage and behind-the-scenes and to make everyone around herself feel warmed and loved. And then there’s The voice. And that’s what I’m going to focus today as it’s the official release day of the two times Tony Award nominee’s latest CD entitled ‘Tennessee Williams: Words and Music’. The album follows Alison’s 2012’s one-woman show ‘Only a Paper Moon: A Tennessee Williams Songbook’, which saw her re-imagining songs and monologues from the various Williams plays with the help of the pianist Allison Leyton-Brown. So in case you missed the actual show (like I sadly did), the new album will surely bring that Broadway swank right into your home. Alison shifts from one character to another, taking on different accents, age and emotions while showcasing her impressive range . Filling the multi-genre collection of songs with her usual mix of elegance and flirtation, Alison once again proves that she is indeed a perfect Tennessee Williams lady. Trust me (and not the ‘The Party’s Over’ number): the party’s never over with this one.
